In the market, there are 5mm to 70mm Bronco wheel spacers for the stock +55 offset wheels. As long as you use a quality set and install them correctly, the Bronco wheel spacers are no different than low-offset wheels. Most motorists purchase wheels based on the looks and bolt patterns but often overlook offset. Sometimes, even if you are going for bigger rims but keeping the same offset, you are already changing the offset. In this case, the Bronco wheel spacers are of importance to you.
These Bronco wheel spacers reduce the distance from the wheel center to the hub assembly, thus they subtract the offset. As a rule of thumb, a 1-inch spacer is approximate -25mm offset. Giving an example, if you get a +65mm offset rim, then a 1-inch spacer changes the offset to be +40mm (65mm – 25mm = 40mm). The less the offset, the more the wheels will stick out from the wheel hub. Each time when changing wheel width, it is a good idea to consider a set of proper Bronco wheel spacers to make the offset correct.
Are Bronco Wheel Spacers or Offset Wheels Better?
People wonder if it’s better to use Bronco wheel spacers or properly offset wheels. Well, it depends on your specific needs. The most obvious difference is the cost. Not everyone is a wheel specialist. A set of good offset wheels means a large budget. If you’re looking for an easier and more cost-effective solution, then Bronco wheel spacers are perfect for you. Some of the benefits of adding wheel spacers are improved handling and better stability. As mentioned before, they provide a wider stance for your car.
Aside from the above functions, BONOSS forged active cooling Bronco wheel spacers provide more additional advantages. For example, the active cooling technique. Distributed in petal shape, the cooling grooves allow the external cold air to flow continuously inside the wheel spacer when it rotates. Besides, the knurling surfaces eliminate internal stress which contributes to more reliable product mechanical properties. The crisscross knurling pattern enlarges the cooling area which is good for the active cooling effect. BONOSS knurling wheel spacers boost the whole user experience.
Do Ford Bronco Wheel Spacers Need to Be Hub-centric?
Whether you get Ford Bronco wheel spacers or offset rims, make sure they are hub-centric. Because hub-centric wheels and spacers ensure a firm wheel connection which makes the wheel better support the vehicle weight and resist impact loads on the road. To make the hub-centric spacers fit more snugly with the vehicle hub, BONOSS forged active cooling Ford Bronco wheel spacers are designed with better multi-stage hub-centric rings.
The hub-centric metal ring is machined to be multi-layers, and the bevels fit the corresponding hub flange, which eliminates any possible gaps. The 0.02mm machining precision guaranteed a high-quality surface. The higher the precision of the contact face, the better the Ford Bronco wheel spacers will fit, thus, the safer your driving will be. This adds strength to the wheel combination, reduces the chance of vibration, and provides a better driving experience. Such forged active cooling hub-centric wheel spacers are the best option for wheel upgrades.
